Some New Beginnings

It’s been a while since I’ve updated this site and I am truly sorry for that. Whenever my life spins a little out of my control the first things I lose my grip on are my favorite tasks. It’s been m o n t h s since I last updated here or on my Patreon or on my Etsy. But now I’m working to get back in to the swing of the things and gets some updates rolling out.

NaNoWriMo is next month!!! That’s exciting and also terrifying as some of my fellow writer may be feeling right now. My ultimate goal is to have Crooked Letters to Crooked Lovers FINISHED by the end of November (fingers crossed). Then I could start the printing process and make my final round of edits and add ons. I’m hoping to have everything wrapped up and ready to go by early 2018!

Here’s another poem set to be featured in the collection; a personal favorite of mine (and one you’ve already sneaked a peak at if you follow me on Instagram):

Even on the darkest nights

the earth still turns

spins

and wakes up again

My only hope is that you do too

As always, of you’d like to get inside looks at this project or support it in anyway my Patreon account is the place to go! (Plus I just updated all of my rewards and other patron goodies) Thanks for sticking it out through my scattered time frame and thought process.

Love and light,

m.m.t.

Medicated and Mighty

I'm spending the day editing my book and making the final touches on some of the poems, order, and other small details!
I'm honestly amazed with myself for how quickly this is coming together now that I actually have the energy to work on it.
(Thank you Wellbutrin for making me feel alive again.)
Here's another sneak peek at one of the poems that will be in the book; one that I feel suits how I've been feeling this week. Let me know your thoughts!

Store bought neurotransmitters

Are just as valid as homemade

Not being able to make your own

Does not make you weak

And taking the steps to receive help

Doesn't make you broken

It makes you strong as hell

Witchcraft

I am a force of nature
not easily contained
I have magick coursing through me
and every time I open my mouth
I move mountains with my spells
I will not let you walk into my life
and demand that I make myself small
just to make you more comfortable
I am a force of nature
Respect that or prepare to face
my true and abundant force

⁃ a witch who refuses to burn

Do Not Fall In Love With A Writer

Writer (noun): reckless, impulsive, capricious, and unapologetic. Never fully satisfied with real life. Do not fall in love with a writer.



I will break your heart in million different ways solely for my art

I will start fights and heal old wounds for the experience 

for the emotions 

for the power it brings to my work

I will make you see yourself in a whole new light

I will give you my sight

In the form of abstract poetry

And let you look through the lens with which I view the world 

And you will not like what you find there

I will write versions of you that make you uncomfortable 

unsure

Or uncertain

Of how to interpret my perspective of you

My love for you 

My raw emotions displayed for everyone else to view

Thoughts On: Feminism

Walking to my car

Alone

At night

A vice grip around my keys

Held like a weapon 

It’s a short distance 

But we all know the dangers

We’ve all been taught the dangers

Since we were too young to properly understand them

Too many stipulations on a young existence 

It’s the fear of never knowing true freedom 

The fear of never truly being able to say “No” and be heard

And be validated 

When we’ve all been taught from a young age

How to act

How to dress

How to speak

How to live

How to avoid being a victim

But in these lessons

We were taught something greater

How to stand 

United

Never making a move alone

Stronger together

So we take our stand

And fight

Together
